Updates 10th Oct 2012 : Fixed Arabic broken text (letters are not joining) & post updated.
Sublime text 2 has so many brilliant features that saves time & effort. Sublime text 2 supports UTF-8, but right now it lacks capability to handle bidirectional languages like Arabic, Hebrew etc… Sublime BiDi Plugin will enable this shortcoming. Sublimes’s future version may support Right-To-Left Languages. Developers from MENA region will love this feature.
Clone it from github to your package directory.
Change your font in sublime user settings [Windows]
Set it to Arial or any other font that supports Arabic.
- Open document
- Press Ctrl+b or Tools > Bidirectional text
This plugin is in its early stage. I don’t know Arabic. I have tested using pattern matching.
